Festive funds for Fernhurst volunteers

PLANS are already afoot to raise some vital cash for Fernhurst organisations over Christmas.

Fernhurst Scouts and the Fernhurst Centre have joined together to run the village’s first Christmas delivery service.

They have their own specially-designed stamps costing 20p each, and there will be collection boxes and stamps for sale at the centre and at Fernhurst Primary School.

It is hoped this initiative will be a saving for card senders and make a small profit, which will go towards funding for the scouts and the centre.

A map of the roads and postcodes covered will be on display at both venues and on the centre’s website at
www. fernhurstcentre.org.uk

Volunteers will sort the cards, which will be delivered on December 15 and 22 by the scouts, as well their friends and family.
